There is no place like home

It is very early in the morning. Finley is still asleep and Sadie is helping me write a new blog.
As I look out the window, watching the sun rise and the neighbors cutting grass with old fashioned instruments, I consider myself extremely lucky to be able to come here. I had a dream last night that I was gutting the hotel with Ida...we chucked everything, starting all over again. It felt great, very real.

We have such versatile weather here, which makes it very easy to do things. The really hot days are for going to the lake and the cooler ones for attending all kinds of the circus. Yesterday afternoon we visited our friends at "Handmountain Ranch". They breed Yaks and keep a stable full of horses. A five week old foal and three yak calves kept Finley happy.

We still have two weeks to go and lots of plans for more excitement like the zoo, Hirschalm, Salzkammergut, St. Oswald...!!
Fritz purchased a slack line and will hopefully put it up in the garden today for all of us to practice.
More adventure, bring it on.
